I have an existing curb cut, an opening in the sidewalk from the street to allow for driveway access to my property, but I have no driveway utilizing it. There used to be a driveway and a garage. Now a chainlink fence runs across any future driveway placement. But it is my curb cut to my house.
I dreamt that I learned that it was a City of Boston rule that if you did not use your curb cut
within six months of home purchase you lose the right to use it ever. In the dream, I googled City of Boston curb cuts. I read the regulations, multiple detailed pages of them, with citations, footnotes, links, contact numbers, and all. Detailed. It said that, indeed, that rule was correct. Since I have lived in my home for about 10 years longer than six months, I had lost my right to use my curb cut.
When I awoke, I immediately googled City of Boston curb cut and, thankfully, my dream regulations were wrong. The real rules were stated in two small paragraphs. I have not lost my right to use my coveted curb cut.
